The Mountain Series is a hand selected collection of the highest performance fabrics/materials on earth - each one optimized for applications ranging from tarp/shelters, to quilts, hammocks, packs, and other high-end outdoor gear.
Custom woven from the ground up with high-tenacity nylon 6.6 yarn and an oversized ripstop grid, 1.2 oz MTN XL Hybrid sets the new standard for ultralight fabric in strength and durability.
Compared to the previous generation, this fabric is:
- Roughly 30% stronger (*based on tear strength ASTM D1434)
- Higher abrasion and UV resistance (*via upgrade to HT nylon 6.6)
As the name implies, 1.2 oz MTN XL Hybrid uses our unique Hybrid weave ripstop construction. Compared to most standard ripstop fabrics, we use a thicker, stronger yarn (80D) for the ripstop grid vs the base fabric (20D).
The result is a noticeably stronger and more rugged material with minimal increase in overall finished weight...
Lastly, we utilize a diamond hybrid ripstop grid pattern. This makes the fabric easier to sew, increases comfort for load bearing applications (e.g. hammocks), and tends to extend the overall life of the fabric.
Like the other fabrics in our XL line, we've custom woven 1.2 oz MTN XL Hybrid to be WIDER than standard fabrics at 68" versus the more common 60" width.
Typical uses include widebody hammocks, synthetic quilt shells, chairs, light duty bags, or any application where breathable and lightweight yet strong/durable fabric is needed.
- This fabric was transitioned to 1.2 oz nylon 6.6 from the previous 1.2 oz nylon 6 variant on 7/30/19. The 1.2 oz nylon 6 variant will not be restocked.
- We also trimmed the weight back to 1.2 oz from 1.3 oz on 8/20/20. This will be the new weight we stock moving forward.
